Donating was painless and quick
By Cheryl H., Monroe  MI (I donated a 1977 Lincoln )

How your car helps

Our charity programs are the essence of what we do. We are thankful to be able to give back to many local communities across North America and to bring educational opportunities to so many children. We're a registered nonprofit Jewish organization. Learn about what we do and see our charity programs here.

Kars4kids Mentor Program
The Kars4Kids Vision

Kars4Kids‘ vision is to give our children the ability to succeed in life. We focus on educational, mentorship and year-round programs for our children, their families and their communities, looking at the big picture of our children‘s development and the environment they grow up in. We rely on thousands of volunteers to help us change the world, one child at a time.

Tutoring

Every child learns differently. Some children just need a little extra help and personal attention to absorb the material they are taught in the classroom. A tutoring session one-on-one a couple of times a week can be the difference between success and failure for these students.

Back to School Distributions

It's become an annual tradition at Kars4Kids to give away several thousand backpacks and other school supplies in the "back to school" season. Because we firmly believe that without adequate basic supplies, it's very hard for children to be successful students.

Still have questions?

The amount you can claim from the IRS as a tax deduction depends on the category applicable to you:
The IRS allows you to claim a tax deduction of:
a) The value of your vehicle up to $500. It is up to the donor to determine the fair market value.
b) The amount we sell your vehicle for - if it is more than $500.

Kars4kids is a classified 501(c)(3) charity organization. You can check with your tax advisor or accountant to determine the amount of your benefit. The deduction is of value only if the donor itemizes his or her deductions. For a more detailed overview the IRS publishes a Donors Guide to Car Donation.
We accept the following donations: car, snow plow, boat, bus, jet ski, truck, RV (motor home), commercial, airplane, van, trailer, motorcycle, ATV, tractor, and fleet donations. Sorry no kids.
We can pick up a vehicle in Michigan without a title. We will just need the registered owner to sign some paperwork for us.
In almost all scenarios Kars4kids will apply for the new title for you. We'll handle all the paperwork and pay the title fees too.
If you'd prefer you may apply for a new title on your own. Here's how:
You can apply for a duplicate title using the Department's online ExpressSOS or process a duplicate title application at a Secretary of State branch office.

The sample title document to the left of this paragraph has a blue arrow. Sign where the arrow appears using the name listed on the front page of your car title. The title document should be given to the tow truck driver at the time your car is collected.
  1. Remove plates
    Remove and keep the license plate that was on the vehicle you donated.  Make sure that you remove your registration card from the vehicle. You may transfer your plate to another vehicle. If you will not be transferring the plates to another vehicle you should deface the plates.

  2. Stop insurance
    Cancel your insurance coverage on the donated vehicle once it’s been picked up.

MI fun factsPerhaps the coolest car donation ever received by Kars4Kids was a Chrysler PT Cruiser painted to resemble a University of Michigan football helmet. This interesting donation came to us by way of Fred J., of Iron River, MI.
